Attic Clean Up Service for Raccoon Damage
Raccoons can cause massive mayhem in an attic environment. Not only can
they destroy roofing, insulation, and other materials, they can also cause
a biohazard due to the buildup of animal waste. If you require remediation
for raccoon damage, Atticare NJ can help. Our
professional attic cleanup services include the removal of animal waste,
thermal inspection, and
insulation services. We offer a team of trained, licensed, and insured experts to quickly
and efficiently cleanup raccoon damages.
Home Damages Caused by Raccoons
Raccoons do not make good house guests. If left to their own devices, they
can cause damage to ventilation and electrical systems, which increases
the risk of fire, water damage, mold growth, and very disastrous damage
to your home. As raccoons weigh an average of eight to 20 pounds, they
can also compress attic insulation simply by walking around. Another major
concern is their urine and feces. A single raccoon can produce enough
animal waste to cause serious health problems for the home’s inhabitants.
Long-Term Consequences of Raccoon Damage
One of the biggest long-term consequences of raccoon damage is the health
risks these critters pose to humans. Raccoons can carry various diseases,
such as rabies, distemper, and parasitic worms. Infected egg spores from
raccoon droppings are light and can easily become airborne, affecting
whoever breathes them in. Raccoons can also carry fleas and lice, which
can then transfer to people or pets.
Raccoon Damage Cleanup and Recovery
Our raccoon damage remediation process begins with attic cleanup where
we remove and vacuum animal waste. We can also install plywood and create
a storage area for your belongings that will keep them off the floor.
Next, we rodent proof by blocking entry points with metal mesh to prevent
the raccoons from gaining future access to the attic. Envirocon spray
is used to remove any lingering smells. We also offer thermal inspections
which act as a valuable energy efficiency solution. Finally, we offer
insulation services to reverse previous damage or to upgrade your existing insulation.
How to Prevent Raccoon Damage in the Future
If you don’t take the proper precautions, your home can once again
fall victim to hazardous raccoons. You can help prevent these creatures
from targeting your home by keeping garbage secured in trashcans and by
cutting back trees six to eight feet away from your home to prevent access
to your roof.
Raccoons can cause serious damage to your roof, attic, and other components
of your home. If you suspect or know that raccoons have taken residency
in your home, it’s crucial to quickly have them removed and your
attic cleaned and disinfected. For more information about our services or to
